Bill's Birthday Present

Pepperdine University Graduation 2011

So fun when they throw their caps!

We're all very proud of Colin

Bill would have turned 57 this past Saturday. Instead of sadness that he's not here anymore to celebrate, we experienced great joy and happiness because Colin graduated from college. We're so proud! Bill would've been so proud too and felt it the perfect gift! Having Will along with us somehow felt connected to Patrick who also graduated from Pepperdine University. He would have been proud of his baby brother for sure! It was a windy but beautiful day and Will behaved wonderfully! It's hard enough for an adult to pay attention to some of the speeches let alone a three year old! Huge accomplishment Colin. Way to go!

I too am very proud of Colin. I had the pleasure of working with him a few months ago and learned what a wonderful young man he has become. Congratulations Colin. I love you lots. Grandpa Jim.

Hi Debi, Congratulations to Colin and to you too! Colin worked hard, and you were an amazing support in the entire process. What a beautiful day for a Pepperdine graduation, and a great way to celebrate Bill's #57. Will sounds like a real trooper; I'm sure he made the entire 3 hours a little more entertaining. See you next month. much love, cathy z

Congrats Colin! I can't believe how big Will is getting. FYI-I follow Erynn's blog and hopped over from there.
